The 2018 Holiday Catalog is out so I am ready for Fall Colors and Leaves! I did a small order so that I could receive my Holiday Catalog with the order because it is so hard to see all the items and fine details looking at the Catalog online in PDF format.  Oh WOW, my list is sooooo long now. There are so many beautiful AND FUN items in the catalog. I love that many of the stamps and sentiments are versatile for other occasions not just Fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Those of you that have ordered from me will be receiving your copy in the next week or so.  If you don’t have a demonstrator and are visiting this page, please let me know and I would be happy to mail you a copy.

I have been feeling a little low, no stamping mojo lately but Fall colors just perk me up! Also, playing with new products like the items in the Country Lane Suite really improved my mood for stamping. I used the Country Home stamp set for this card.

I wish I had seen and ordered the Galvanized Metallic Paper, new in the Holiday Catalog.  I think it would have been a great background but I do love the way the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in Crushed Curry turned out. I gently spritzed it with water, as recommended for all the Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. (This prevents cracks in the cardstock due to the deep impressions.) The details from the Tin Tiles impressions are awesome! I added a small piece of the Chicken Wire Elements to the left side of the card. 

I ordered a few of the new Stampin’ Blends in the Holiday Catalog to add to my complete set of Stampin’ Blends colors added this year in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog but I missed Blackberry Bliss Combo Pack. No worries, I will be placing another order this weekend! There are just too many items to order, so I will be ordering frequently so that I can pace myself for sharing the new items (and my wallet LOL).

Don’t forget that the all new Blended Seasons Bundle with coordinating stamps and Framelits and Watercolor Pencils (new colors) is available for a limited time to customers this month (and while supplies last). I have been using the label Framelits for cards that I have posted and cards we made at Stamp Night the last week of July.  I just love the Framelits! There are three sizes so if you like to make layers on cards, they are perfect.  Since I am posting Fall Colors and Leaves, I used the leaves stamp from the Bundle to create the image for the front of the card. 

Lastly, don’t forget August is Bonus Days! For every $50 you spend you get a $5 coupon to use on an order in September (just in time for your Holiday Catalog)!  Don’t misplace the coupon when you receive it in email from Stampin’Up!, you must save the coupon code to get your discounts!

Stay tuned for lots of updates regarding these amazing Holiday Catalog items.  

Next Stamp Night – August 27, my craft studio from 6 – 9 p.m.

This blog post is similar to my newsletter for today’s version, since I haven’t sent one in awhile due to travel and prepping for Stamp Night in July. But if you want to be sure to be informed of specials and other events, be sure to scroll to the bottom right of this blog and you will see the button to subscribe to my newsletter. I don’t send email updates of blog posts, just my newsletter so that there are not too many emails from me. I will be posting cards and product details on the blog. The newsletter will be for other updates with card sample pictures only.

You can visit my Demonstrator Site to order items seen in the Product List below, except the new Holiday Items, those won’t be posted online until September 5.  Click here to visit my site.
